Dear Families,

Jefferson opened the doors this January in full swing. We began our indoor recess programs for students. Children are learning yoga poses and Hip Hop moves from talented instructors.

We began a series of parent workshops about the Common Core Learning Standards. All of the workshops will help parents assist their children at home and understand the State’s expectations. Please take advantage of these great opportunities.

The Jefferson Greenhouse Fundraising Committee is planning several events for late winter and early spring. We have raised about $20,000. We are looking for further assistance. We need more ideas and support from the community to get this initiative off the ground.  If you have expertise in any type of construction, ideas for fundraising or just love gardening, please contact me. We would love additional support for this wonderful endeavor.


Together, we will accept the diversity of all children, taking them forward on their educational journeys to reach their fullest potential, and encouraging their curiosity so they become successful lifelong learners.

Together, we will foster partnerships with the goal of encouraging student achievement by building on students' strengths and supporting their social and emotional development.

Together, we will continue to promote and enhance the educational development of every member (staff, students and parents) of the Jefferson Community.

2014 New York State English/Language Arts and Math Assessment Results

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) has released ELA and Math assessment results. Please note that there was a technical error by the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center (LHRIC) in submitting the District's grade 5 math scores to NYSED. Grade 5 math scores were inaccurately displayed upon initial posting to NYSED's website and will be unavailable until the LHRIC and NYSED remedy the situation. Parent reports will be mailed by the LHRIC in September. For further inquiries please contact your school's administrator.

School Community Health Advisory Influenza Vaccine Fall 2014/Winter 2015

The district wishes to ensure that the importance of getting the Influenza vaccine does not get lost in all of the media and public discussion of Enterovirus D68 and even Ebola. See Frank Bruni’s recent NY Times column,
“Scarier Than Ebola”:  Click Here

Influenza is a serious and potentially deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that ALL individuals 6 six months of age and older be vaccinated against Influenza.

The Flu virus changes genetically from year to year, so last year's Flu vaccine will not reliably protect you from this year's circulating Flu strains. Everyone needs to be vaccinated annually.
